Women In The Word Wednesday

For those of you who were with us this past fall GMG session, you know I asked each group to decide how they can put God’s words into action by being Christ’s hands and feet to those in their families, GMG group, towns, states, countries or world! Each group decided how they wanted to complete the challenge. A few weeks ago I received yet another fall challenge submission that I’ve been dying to share with you all!

To Courtney & Angela (& the GMG community),

Thanks so much for the fall challenge to get involved in serving a need around us!  It was really special to share together with my GMG friends in serving our Lord by meeting the needs of our local community! We had been discussing the idea that we are Jesus’ hands and feet today and that we wanted to experience the compassion Jesus felt for the needy who flocked to him every day.  To complete the challenge, we decided to partner with an existing ministry, called the Overflow, that provides free clothing, home goods, pantry & hygiene items, along with a hot meal, to those in need in our county through two major distribution days per year.  The Overflow just completed its 2nd year of service, and our GMG group of 4 preschool moms was able to help with sorting clothing and packaging the pantry items ahead of time, to be ready for the 100+ families that would attend.  Two of us were also able to attend the giveaway as volunteers and make a personal connection with those we were serving, many with children the ages of our own children.  Living in a small town, it was neat to help out families that we actually see in passing on a regular basis but never really knew the needs they had until they came to the giveaway. Through this ministry, the church family that hosts the event also reaches out to the guests to meet not only their physical needs of food and provisions, but also their spiritual needs through prayer and the invitation for Bible study.  Thanks for the inspiration to get involved, and to do it together!

Love in Christ,

Great job Teresa, Melissa, Leah & Amy! Thanks so much for sharing with us how your GMG group completed the fall challenge and for being Jesus’s hands and feet to all those families in your community! Looks like you all had a great time while doing it too!

Serve the Lord with gladness!- Psalm 100:2

Now it’s time to share and link-up! Can’t wait to read what all you’ve been learning this week!

Love God Greatly!
